1987 FUEL COST ADJUSTMENT
FOR NYC RENT CONTROLLED APARTMENTS

Owners who are required to file the 1987 Landlord's Report,
Certification and Notice of Fuel Cost Adjustment Eligibility -
Form RA-33.10 (3/87) based on the fact that they used a fuel in
1986 for which the price declined, may find that the cumulative
Fuel Cost Adjustment surcharge to tenants this year may be
minimal or zero.

For such owners, the following special procedures have been
established, effective immediately:

Owners wishing to minimize the reporting requirements under the
Fuel Cost Program may, under these circumstances, elect not to
file the 1987 Landlord's Report, Certification and Notice of Fuel
Cost Adjustment Eligibility by waiving the right to collect the
cumulative surcharge for the period January 1, 1987 through
December 31, 1987.

Under these special procedures, the owner will have to serve on
each affected tenant a STATEMENT OF WAIVER (containing all the
information in the approved sample attached) and must file with
the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal a
MASTER SCHEDULE OF WAIVER (sample also attached) indicating the
apartment number and name of each tenant who has been served with
a STATEMENT OF WAIVER and the cumulative Fuel Cost Adjustment
surcharge that had been collectible from each tenant during 1986
(or earlier). If the owner elects to waive the collection of the
surcharge, the owner must serve the tenant with the STATEMENT OF
WAIVER and file the MASTER SCHEDULE OF WAIVER with the New York
State Division of Housing and Community Renewal by July 31, 1987.

An owner who elects to continue this waiver in subsequent years
may do so without taking further action. The waiver will
automatically remain in effect until such time as the owner, in
some subsequent year, files a timely LANDLORD'S REPORT,
CERTIFICATION AND NOTICE OF FUEL COST ADJUSTMENT ELIGIBILITY
pursuant to the rules then in effect, in order to collect the
Fuel Cost Adjustment surcharge that may be collectible at that
time. For any subsequent year that the owner elects to file and
collect the surcharge, the collectible amount will be based upon
the amount that was waived in 1987 (if greater than zero) plus or
minus any adjustments that would have been made to the cumulative
total in the interim if the owner had not waived collection.
